Has anyone had facial swelling that began to disappear with a gluten-free diet?

I was swollen everywhere, including my face. And yes, within days on the gluten-free diet, people were commenting on my thinner face, asking if I had lost weight.

Same here, within days it is going down. I just wasn't sure if facial swelling was a symptom. Thanks.
